Brand new Seagate barracuda 500GB SATA hdd not detected

I have purchased 2 WD sata 500gb drives and both were doa.
I then replaced the WD hdd for a Seagate Barracuda 500GB sata hdd and this also is not detected by the bios but the other 2 old sata drives are detected.
Is it at all possible that I have had 3 sata hdd that have all been doa?
I have now reconnected my old smaller drives until I can get some sense to all this.

    check up on ntfs limits. then get format disk from seagate if purchased OEM. ntfs has like a 130gb limit or so so you need to format hdd with special disk for bios to recognize it.

This is normal. SATA II drives spin much faster and run much hotter then IDE drives. You can attach a hard drive cooler to the hard drive if you wish and if there is enough room in your case.
